Biking for Biology is a program set up by the WCU Biology Club to help raise money to fund events for club members throughout the fall and spring semesters (2016-2017).

A very brave professor (Dr. Darby Harris) at WCU has volunteered to bike for the club. He is going to bike from our Health and human services building (HHS), which is directly across from the main campus up the hill to the Jackson County Airport. Each time he climbs up the hill to the airport he is traveling approimately 560 ft up. Our goal is to raise enough money to have him bike up the hill 52 times. In case you were unaware of the math, that is a total of 29,120 feet, which is actually taller than the peak of Mount Everest.

Dr. Harris came up with the idea himself and has agreed to take on the daring challenge in the name of Biology. 

Each lap up to the Airport and back down to HHS is going to cost $20. This is just a suggest amount, but ANY DONATION IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. 

**If you donate a partial amount Dr. Harris will be riding the equivalent distance for the amount that was donated. For example $10 will have Dr. Harris ride up one way**

Thank you all so much for donating and supporting the Biology Club. Dr. Harris successfully made his climb and is still alive to tell about it. :) Thank you again to everyone who made this possible the money you donated is being put to use within the Biology club for t-shirts, club projects, community service and a club trip. THANK YOU!!
